Enabling the compression feature for a new Open Systems SnapVault relationship

You can enable the compression feature for bandwidth optimization for a new Open Systems SnapVault relationship.

Step

  1. On the secondary storage system, when setting up an Open Systems SnapVault relationship, enter the following command to specify the compression option: snapvault start -o compression=on -S prim_host:dirpath sec_host:sec_qtree_path

    -o compression=on enables the compression feature for bandwidth optimization.

    -S specifies the primary storage system and path. It must be given the first time to configure the qtree. It is optional when restarting an initial transfer for a previously configured qtree.

    Example
    snapvault start -o compression=on -S systemA:C:\dir3 systemB:/vol/vol1/qtree3
